sync bras and speed test results

hey, jsut wondering, im synching at 2.1 - 2.3mb

which has given me a bras profile off 2000kbs

but on speed tests im only getting 1.4mb

is this like a limitation on my line ? or "should" i be getting the full sync speed/ only to be limited by the BRAS profile

thx ady

WHat speed tests have you tried - more than one I hope?

What speed do you get for HTTP downloads - www.btopenworld.com/speedtest/ and donload the 10MB file and see what the download speed settles at once it gets past 50% downloaded.

ive tried adslguide.org and speedtest.net

from the BT 10mb file, i got 175kb/s

175Kbits or 175KBytes?

If 175KB then that is reasonable to good for a 2Mbs line.
N/A

Have yuo got firewall enabled (like norton or similar)? this will stop plus net speed tester working.

i had zonealarm, but that was ok, i think it must be the router i baught, because i dont no how to config it

175KB/s *

i thaught i would be getting in the region of around 230KB/s
as 175KB/s was around* the same speed as what i got with a 1500 bras profile

thx ady,

The issue is BT's IP Profile set at 1500kbps, try na keep your modem on an synced at 2100kbps or higher for BT BRAS to up date, may take a few days

It seems plusnets MSR is correct... Wish mine was :twisted:
